may be offensive. c-span: at what point did you decide to do a documentary on the detroit? >> guest: i'm from the area. i was born and raised in the dietrich areas of there was a personal connection. i never considered making a film in detroit or with any personal ties to myself whatsoever. but my co-director and body, rachel, started talking about the city of detroit in late 2008, because i would return home and things seemed to be getting worse and worse. it was all pretty bad when i grew up there in the 80's. so to see the crisis spread out further and further into the suburbs and a lot of people i knew were leaving and we started discussing what was the future of this place, but wouldn't like, then in october of 2009i came with my crew for three days as an experiment and filmed in a city just as an outsider and talked to a few people and absolutely riveted by the people and the place. and i thought there's definitely a movie here. i'm not sure what it is that we need to make a film and in detroit. c-span: i read that you're father had an impact on you and his business is over the y

names on that list: texas rangers outfielder nelson cruz and detroit tigers' shortstop johnny peralta. but road reeg ez, a three-time m.v.p. has eclipsed all the others and joins barry bonds, roger clemens, mark maguire and a host of others as fallen icons of the game. the 14-time all tar had off-season surgery but as fate would have it, he's ready to return to big league play tonight in chicago. he addressed the matter friday night after hitting a towering home run in minor league tune-up games. >> i think there's a lot of people that are confused and don't understand the process. there is a lot of layers. i will say this. there's more than one party that benefits from me not ever stepping back on the field. that's not my teammates. it's not the yankee fans. >> who is it? who benefits? >> i can't tell you. i can't tell you that right now. i hope i never have to. >> suarez: that clearly was a reference to major league baseball and the yankees. the team reportedly has considered trying to void the $100 million-plus left on rodriguez's ten-year $275 million contract. as to whether he wo
approaching detroit on christmas day, and a 2010 plot to send bombs in printer cartridges in cargo planes bound for the u.s. both plots were foiled at the last minute. in 2009, al asiri even planted a bomb on his own brother in his underwear or a body cavity. the brother got close to saudi arabia's counter terror chief and set it off, killing himself but not the saudi minister. >> what does it say that he does this with his own brother? >> it says that he's absolutely ruthless. not only is ibrahim al asiri absolutely ruthless, he is, according to leading explosive experts in the west, really good at what he does. he's produced the most sophisticated devices ever seen from al qaeda. >> reporter: last year, u.s. officials say al asiri was behind another foiled plot to send another bomb in the underwear of a terrorist on a commercial plane bound for the u.s. the head of the tsa called that a next gen device. >> it was a new type of explosive that we had never seen and either attempted in the u.s. or around the world by terrorists. so all of our explosive detection equipment which screens ove

i'm sitting right out detroit, they're running monetary growth rate at 80 miles an hour, plus, bill. they'll decelerate. they have to. i'll stand by what you and i have talked about, the most aggressive fed easing, i will know in my lifetime as an investor, and that's been one of the key catalysts to why small-cap stocks are up over 200% from their march 2009 lows, and more recently, small-cap stocks are up 40% from the november 15th post-election l s lows, and that, i think, is really centered on aggressive fed policy. >> and, michael, the last time you were on, we talked about this so-called revenue recession we seem to be in here, where we're in another earnings period where the bottom line expectations have been met with revenue numbers not there now. >> the same old thing. revenue is still short. i will say, though, there's something very positive in the economic reports. i think bob pisani mentioned it earlier, and he had a note out this morning about this. that the trade deficit was surprisingly small, or surprisingly narrow. and that very well could mean that we could have
